Q. 30: A development house (DH) uses the V model for its projects. It delivers systems to the energy industry. In response to consumer demands, DH has been asked to create an online system for consumers to switch energy suppliers easily.

There are already offerings in the marketplace for this service, but DH thinks it can provide a service which is easier to use. It will request more detailed information on homes and occupant lifestyles in order to accurately predict likely bills per quarter, and will update users if a cheaper tariff becomes available.

For this new service, the specifications have been defined, code has been created, and system testing is about to start.

Which of the following could form part of the entry criteria into system testing?

I. 100 per cent decision coverage of all tariff calculations.

II. 100 per cent functional specification coverage of all household types.

III. Outstanding defects at integration testing highlighted.

IV. Test summary report for system testing produced.

V. Business requirements signed off.

A. I, II and III
B. II, III and IV
C. I and III
D. I, III and IV

Explanation in favor of the correct Answer:

Option I, ‘100 per cent decision coverage of tariff calculations’, could form part of the exit criteria from unit and integration testing, which could then become part of the entry criteria for system testing. Therefore, this is a suitable option.

Option II, ‘100 per cent functional specification coverage’, would form part of the exit criteria from system testing. Therefore, this is unsuitable.

Option III, ‘outstanding defects highlighted at integration testing’, could form part of the exit criteria from integration testing, and thus form part of the entry criteria into system testing.

Option IV, ‘test summary report produced for system testing’, will be done at defined check points and at the end of system testing, not at the beginning. Therefore, this would not be part of the entry criteria into system testing.

Option V, ‘sign-off of the business requirements’, would form part of the entry criteria into acceptance testing, not system testing.
